Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - OH THE DAYS OF READING INTO EVERY INTERACTION. OR GLANCE. OR WORD. Yes, those days. This sounds like it would be hard with the loss, but sweet with the first love and family. I LOVE the way it sounds.

Alexa Y. - What I think will appeal to me most, should I read Fifteenth Summer, is the way the character experiences her first love. I love when an author is able to authentically capture that feeling, and since you were able to really sense that on your read, I’m pretty sure I’ll feel like you do about it!

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - Did I just hear the word ‘road trip’? 😉 In all seriousness though, this story sounds extremely difficult but also strangely beautiful. I can still remember how deeply I was rocked by my own grandparent’s death and I still miss them everyday. I was around Chelsea’s age, too, which might make reading this story a little difficult for me to read at the moment. I will say that I love the sound of the relationship between Chelsea and Josh and am extremely curious to see how things play out between them. As you recommended, I think I’ll borrow this one.

Alexa Y. - I’ve literally fallen in love with these characters already based on this one scene. It’s SO GOOD. And I love that they talk about figuring each other out, and how they seem to be so in love. What a lovely excerpt!

Bookworm1858 - Cute-love the idea of a July 4th first date as a big fan of fireworks, patriotism, and all that jazz!
